I am so grateful that you can see how much provision he needs. It’s been clear to us for years that there is a lot more to D and his needs than what you see on the surface, but no one has ever listened or believed us. So thank you.”

“I just wanted to say thank you for speaking to me the other day about A’s assessment. It really was very good to hear your feedback and talk about all options to support her more in school in future.
